Building homes and hope for those who fight for our freedom.
The Ten Penny Ale Shamrock Duathlon & 5k is a race to help raise funds to build a specially adapted home for injured Marine Cpl Manny Jimenez in Glastonbury, CT. Jimenez was injured in Afghanistan August 1, 2010 when he was on a routine foot patrol and stepped on an IED that detonated resulting in the loss of his left arm at the shoulder, the loss of hearing in his left ear and partial sight loss in his left eye. Together Purple Heart Homes (see: www.purplehearthomesusa.org and the Glastonbury Rotary are teaming up to build a specially adapted home for Jimenez so he can rebuild his life for the service and sacrifice he made on behalf of our country.
